**New album out now!** 


My Own Army is an alternative / progressive rock band hailing from

Rotterdam, The Netherlands. With over a decade of making music together, My Own Army are venerable veterans of the Dutch rock scene.

2023 marks the release of the band’s second full-length album, "A king On Every Corner". The album breaks away from the grunge-based sound that has typified the band’s earlier work, and takes the listener down an alternate path of progressive power riffs, swaying time signatures, and electronic sparks. The lyrical message is powerful, reminding the listener that there is a King On Every Corner trying to influence his followers.

Inspired by bands like A Perfect Circle, Alice in Chains and Oceansize, My Own Army is a band that continually looks to surpass their boundaries both musically and lyrically. The band gives an energetic and dynamic live performance, mixing a bombastic bass-and-drums-driven rock sound with melodic and atmospheric vocals, backing vocals, electronic beats and wailing lead guitars.

My Own Army is:

Herman de Kok: vocals, guitar and lyrics

Sven Spierings: drums and electronics

Ferry Westdijk: bass

Vincent Hekkert: guitar and backing vocals
